Do you want to know 5 tips how to avoid scams and do not waste your hard earned money? Continue reading learn to recognize fraudulent offers at the first sight.
The sad truth is that most of the HYIP´s (High Yield Investment Programs) on the Internet are SCAMs.
They promise you impossible, incredibly high returns (up to 100% a day), show you exclusive investment schemes, but just to get you up, look professional and then get your money out of your pocket.
Though fraudulent systems are becoming more and more complex and they are masked on a variety of topics, some of the core points which leads us to dishonest intentions of creators remain the same.
It is therefore good to remember them and learn to recognize these SCAM artists and keep them away.
How to see HYIP at a distance
Often we can see HYIP programs promising and “guaranteeing” very above-average yields with minimal risk.
If you see monthly earnings in the order of 10 or more %, you should definitely be careful and stay away from thes opportunities.
There are also a few signs which help us identify if these opportunities are really fraudulent offers.
High Yeald Returns
We can very often see these programs offering daily returns with different “maturity” dates. Some of them offer an appreciation of more than 50% per day.
Some of them offer 7-days, 30-days or 60-day investment horizons, after which they will credit many times for your account.
Beware of such vows. Average stock appreciation of multinational companies on world stock exchanges is around 10% per year. For indexes or bonds it is similar.
As an example of classic scam, we can list the Amazing 5 project, which offered a 112% appreciation within 10 days
Another fraudulent project in the past was Nano Investment Technologies, which promised investors an increase of up to 1111% in 90 calendar days.
Unclear method of achieving profits
As concern SCAM projects you will not be able to find clear information on how the investment funds are allocated and how they are being evaluated.
Fraudulent HYIPs will hide this information from investors. Not only that, these companies are hiding behind the anonymity of the internet, you know nothing about fund managers and how they manage your money.
Do not trust hidden secrets in HYIP
In these programs, fraudsters often pretend to have expertise, knowledge, abilities, or have a secret formula that allows them consistently achieving very above average profits.
However, these secret formulas and ingredients are often nothing but big lie.
Use only Internet wallets except Paypal
It is common practice that most HYIPs require investors to register and open an account with one of the Internet wallet providers.
E-wallets are very popular among online scammers and widely used. This is because unlike credit card or bank transfer payments, it is not possible to cancel ewallet payment.
Another reason is that there are currently no authority regulating ewallets websites by state authorities. In many countries, these sites are required to be registered with the State Banking Regulator.
Internet wallets operating without the approval of the state bank regulator are another red exclamation mark.
Referral program for recruiting new “investors”
The vast majority of companies offer another chance to make some extra money by attracting new investors to the program. Although the affiliate or refferal system is totally legal, it is abusive in the case of fraudulent HYIP programs for the recruitment of new members.
The only reason for such an incentive is that the company will get more, new money to keep the system above the water.
Fresh money is then used to pay the investors who joined the project before you. The entire structure collapses as the cash outflow exceeds the cash inflow. It is clear that the whole system can not work unless new investors come into the system.
Often the first victims of the HYIP fraud are those who first came to the project and are getting the most money for short time period at the top of the pyramid. But they also go out first.
Those who joined the project in the final stage will lose all the money to the last penny as soon as the system begins to collapse. Managers will disappear in the anonymity of the internet along with investors’ resources.
Unfortunately, the anonymity of the internet is a good ground for the various cheerleaders who are trying to make you money. On the other hand, the information is not lost on the Internet too much and once the scammers are identified, their SCAMErs career is over.
We can at least try to verify the information about the projects and their owners in the register of domains and local business registers and looking around on web. But here too, you need to be careful, for example: in virtual office locations, anonymous domain registration, and so on.
For fraudulent HYIP programs we often do not even find any contact information. Forget the addresses, names of owners, agents, telephones, and similar standard information. For HYIP programs you will usually have to have a contact form or chat, which is usually not active.
